OK here is the 1.4.0 script. You can put it in /usr/local,
sign on as root and run it from there. You also need to
have a directory /usr/local/src/s140
cd /usr/local/src/s140
rm -r *
cd ../
svn co svn://scribus.net/branches/Version135/Scribus s140
cd s140
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus4_svn 
make install
cd scribus
ls -l scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib4
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib4

The major distro, whether Fedora or Slackware or whatever 
won't keep up with release candidates. The script will.
